Back when Sylvester Stallone first floated the idea of getting the gang back together for ‘The Expendables 2,' fans took to the Internet to complain that Lionsgate would try and water down the gratuitous violence to achieve an audience-friendly PG-13 rating. Well, put your minds at ease, gore-heads, for the upcoming ‘The Expendables 2’ officially has received an R rating from the MPAA. Want to know what it did to earn such a rating?
If we weren't excited for 'The Expendables 2' panel at Comic-Con 2012 last week, we definitely were after its new poster started making the rounds. It also meant that Hall H in San Diego would be packed with eager fans and journalists alike, waiting to hear what Sylvester Stallone, Jean Claude Van Damme and Arnold Schwarzenegger had to say about the upcoming flick.
One of the summer's most anticipated films is 'The Expendables 2.' Even if the first film was heavily flawed, this time they've added Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme into mix (along with others), and it offers extended roles for Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Here's the first look at the film, with action from Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham.
‘The Avengers’ have assembled, while Spidey and Batman are about to drop. But that doesn’t mean Summer 2012 will be ready to pack it in. Action junkies bummed by the departure of ‘G.I. Joe’ can still look forward to a new ‘Bourne’ movie, as well as Sly Stallone’s ‘Expendables 2', which is shifting its marketing campaign into high gear.
Having Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone in a movie together may have been more exciting before 'The Expendables' films, but let's face it - Arnold's roles were just cameos. 'The Tomb' is first time the duo will really be face to face, and though that might have been more exciting in 1987, it's still kind of cool.
